    Default A few quick Broadband questions

    1. Does anyone have ONSPEED and do you really notice the speed webpages are delivered to you increase 5times?

    2. What is the fastest speed available in the world and in the UK?

    3. Does anyone have or know of any TV stations available through broadband?

    4. What is the cheapest anyone has paid for broadband? (for all different speeds and restrictions)

    I thought there would be faster than 2mb, Me just upgraded with tiscali to 2mb unlimited for 17.99 a month. Arent the Americans ahead of the UK 'cos they had broadband years before us.

    I have Optimum Online Cable internet. It's around 10 megabits.

    However, the fastest that I've seen is VDSL which can get up to 52 megabits.

    My god man, STOP HURTING LOGIC.

    T1 and T3 are dedicated lines, i.e. there's no contention. However, there are broadband services with higher bandwidth - they may or not perform better depending on conditions.

    Lots of places have broadband services with over 40Mb downstream bandwidth (fairly common in Japan). Universities too. As you're sharing the bandwidth with locals, it's not something you'd use to run a production server or public Internet service on, but it's certainly speedier than your AOL 2Mb connection and absolutely mind blowing for everyday use.

    I'd be happy with my 500Kb/s connection back - I've been stuck on dial up since last December.
